Programming to Address Violence Against Women: 10 Case Studies

Your rating: None (1 vote)
Publication Date
January 1, 2007

This 106-page volume documents the experience of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) with addressing many forms of violence against women. Intended primarily for development practitioners and others seeking to change attitudes and practices, it offers lessons that can help scale up responses and confront the problem on a wider scale. The lessons are gleaned from case studies of the following 10 countries: Bangladesh, Colombia, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritania, Mexico, Morocco, Romania, Sierra Leone, and Turkey. The review is part of a series of explorations that UNFPA has undertaken over the past several years to look at the cultural dimensions of gender equality and reproductive health and rights.
